A Message from Those Living on the Gaza Border

A powerful short video to remind us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem ~ Psalm 122:6.

Looking for the Blessed Hope

Iranian-backed Hamas would like nothing better than to rid the region of Jewish people. We hear the news of rockets launched toward Israeli homes near the Gaza border. While Israel is plenty capable of taking care of business in Gaza, the threats from Hamas are real and border residents must be prepared 24/7 for terrorist attacks.

What is it like to live under those conditions? Hear a message from Israelis living on the Gaza border. Then, continue to uphold them in your prayers.

Happy Veterans Day

A good tribute to our vets…

Unashamed of Jesus

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13

While the millionaire professional football players are protesting and disrespecting our veterans, we are continually honoring them. Veterans Day is an important day to remember and pay respect to our heroes past and present. Because of the Veterans we are allowed to express our opinions and even openly practice our faith in Jesus Christ

One Veteran I will always remember is my father, who did three tours in Vietnam for our freedom. Because of him and other heroes like him, we are able to grow up and live in the greatest country in the world. Christians should be very grateful for our Veterans, without them we might not even have Churches, like other countries where Christians are being persecuted and even killed.

When I think of the word Veteran, I think of the…

God Will Deliver His Flock

Great post on the regathering of the People of the Book by my friend Wally Fry.

Truth in Palmyra

Ezekiel 34_12

Ezekiel 34:7-12

In A.D 70 the Roman armies overran and destroyed the city of Jerusalem, and the Jewish people were scattered throughout the world and were for some 1900 years. This prophecy addressed a real, physical scattering of God’s chosen. The fulfillment of this prophecy therefore had to include a real, physical gathering together again of God’s chosen. On May 14, 1948 a huge piece of many prophecies concerning the gathering of God’s chosen people was fulfilled when the nation of Israel was once again in existence on this Earth.

What does this mean to us today? It means, simply, that God’s promises never fail. While it may seem sometime as if God has forgotten us today, this is simply not true. The Jewish people waited almost 1900 hundred years for God to gather them back to The Promised land. During this time they endured affliction and persecution on a…

How Are Our Listening Skills?

A great little reminder to be still and know that He is there…

TLP

Most people would agree that listening is an important skill; most of us aren’t all that good at it.  It’s hard to communicate when all of the communication goes only one way!

I’m not talking about listening to other people, however; I’m talking about communicating with God.

To be entirely accurate, most of us don’t spend much time in prayer talking to God… we’re busy people after all.  For those who do take the time to speak with God, do we ever give Him a chance to contribute to the communication?

Probably not.

You know, there is that “still small voice” people sometimes talk about; can you ever hear it?

Boy, it sure is tough to hear if we’re always doing the talking! Maybe there are times when we are with God that we should just be still for a while and see what happens…  Can we spare the time?

Christmas Bible Verses and a Prayer

Great reminder on Christmas Eve…

Heather C. King - Room to Breathe

verses-for-christmas

Every Christmas Eve, my dad read us the Christmas story, Luke chapters 1 and 2, from the big golden family Bible in the original King James.  I still hear his voice…I still hear the words.

If you’d like to read the full Christmas story, you can find two famous passages in the Gospels: Luke 1-2  and Matthew 1-2.

Here, though, are 20 of my favorite Christmas Bible verses from the Old and New Testaments, reminding us of the Savior, the season, the gift…

  • Isaiah 7:14 NIV
    Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
  • Isaiah 9:2 ESV
    The people who walked in darkness
        have seen a great light;
    those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
        on them has light shone.
  • Isaiah 9:6-7 NIV
    For to us a child is…
